The Lancers welcomed their newest group of members for the 2014-2015 school year, a milestone that comes on the heels of their recent 40th anniversary celebration. Made up of current students at UAH, the Lancers serve as de facto ambassadors for the university. Each semester, they donate at least 15 hours of their time - and often much more - to give campus tours; assist with Commencement, Convocation, and formal events held at President Robert Altenkirch's home; and promote a positive image of the University on campus and in the community. And that's not all, says Taralyn Caudle, assistant director of alumni relations and Lancers staff advisor. &quot;Their job is to provide information about the University to visitors and guests,&quot; she says, &quot;but they also get to network with administrators, community leaders, and sometimes public officials, utilizing their etiquette and leadership skills.&quot; As for the Lancers' newest additions, she continues, they're in good hands with the group's veterans. &quot;They really are some of the most impressive students I've come across,&quot; says Caudle. &quot;Not only are they all academically stellar, but they are also very dedicated – and frankly, run pretty darn efficient early-morning meetings.&quot; To learn more about the Lancers, visit UAH Lancers.
